Michael Justason shares an innovative method of virtual teaching using a Lightboard on CHCH.

Michael Justason, assistant professor in the W Booth School of Engineering Practice & Technology, shares his engaging approach to virtual learning this fall on CHCH TV.

Justason uses lightboards, a tool that allows you to stand, gesture, and face the camera, while presenting your slides and other pre-recorded content on a vertical glass surface in front of you. Even better, you can scribble and draw on the glass in real time.

“This is a wonderful substitute for the traditional whiteboard or blackboard,” says Justason.
